    Z-axis motor

    Impressive. I would be far to embarrassed to show my grease stained, coffee blotched notes that even I can't read. Well done. Cheers, Peter

    Richard Trevithick's Dredger

    Videos like that make this hobby worthwhile, I can imagine the feeling of satisfaction you must experience every time you hear it chug away. Good one. Cheers, Peter.
